4.0 out of 5 stars plenty to read 9 Nov. 2010
Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
This book comes with spiral binding, separate pattern sheets, photos and drawings.
More photos of the bags details - especially of the inside - would have been nice.
Also over all more visual guidance would be helpful rather than plenty of written instructions.
Still a nice book with lots of differnt types and sizes of bags.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but... 25 Jan. 2012
By Vix
Format:Hardcover-spiral
This book looks gorgeous, is good quality and the pictures are beautifully shot. The trouble is that I just don't find the patterns particularly inspiring. Several of the bags are huge, most require home dec fabric (and loads of it) which makes them expensive to make and quite a high proportion of the patterns look terrifyingly complicated. I much prefer Lisa Lam's Bag Making Bible, which is a fab general guide to bag making, or Making Vintage Bags which has lots of cute little bags. I adored Amy Butler's previous book, Little Stitches, but was a bit disappointed with this. 3 stars may be a bit low - it is probably more of a 3.5 - but I had high expectations for this book and they were not really met.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book 8 May 2011
By Lyn D
Format:Hardcover-spiral
This is a beautifully presented book with stunning photography of Amys gorgeous bags. Its laid out well with simpler projects at the front and moving on to more advanced as you go through and including suggestions as to how to customise your creations.
I loved the separate envelope at the back containing the pattern sheets - far preferable to having to spend time photocopying pages!
The only downside is that some of the text is quite light coloured and not so easy to read in dim light.
Overall a lovely book with stunning and unique bag designs.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent book. 27 Nov. 2010
Format:Hardcover-spiral
This is an excellent book with good quality patterns included to use immediately. The only downside of this book is the very light coloured font it is printed in. It is very difficult to read in low light which did disappoint me. Other than that, great book!

1.0 out of 5 stars Eileen 13 Mar. 2011
By Eileen
Format:Hardcover-spiral
Fussy fabrics do not help with instruction. Patterns for bags are printed on both sides of paper so need to trace them, which I feel is penny pinching. Would not recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very complicated 19 Jun. 2011
By Maggie
Format:Hardcover-spiral
I was very excited to get this book but that soon waned when I looked throught the book and realised how complicated the patterns were. I am an experience sewer but a lot of them are beyond me. The fabrics she uses are gorgeous though and it is nice just to flick through the book. Don't think I will be making many of the bags though. Pity !
